Comedy Central has officially greenlit Good Talk with Anthony Jeselnik, a comedic interview series that will premiere on September 6 at 11 p.m. ET/PT. Each episode will feature an interview with one of Anthony’s friends – who happen to be some of the best comedians in the business – as they discuss all things comedy. Over the course of six episodes, Jeselnik will sit down with David Spade, Kristen Schaal, Kumail Nanjiani, Natasha Leggero, Nick Kroll, and Tig Notaro.
In Good Talk, Jeselnik switches gears from his signature acerbic style for tongue-in-cheek interviews with his fellow comedians about their careers, influences and what it’s like to live in his massive shadow. Jeselnik and his guests center their extremely funny conversations around stand up, stories and bits and participate in elegantly bizarre studio segments.
Good Talk with Anthony Jeselnik is part of Comedy Central’s multiplatform development deal with the irreverent, iconoclastic comedian, which includes 40 episodes of The Jeselnik and Rosenthal Vanity Project podcast, since its fall 2018 launch. The #1 brand in comedy has also previously collaborated for two seasons of The Jeselnik Offensive and his 2013 stand-up special, Caligula.
